Research overview

Together with her group, Manon Schweinfurth investigates the evolutionary and psychological origins of cooperation. In particular, she is interested in why and how individuals decide to help others instead of being selfish. To investigate these questions, she mostly studies chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) and Norway rats (Rattus norvegicus) besides humans. Most of her studies are based on predictions derived from game theoretical models that she tests experimentally in both the lab and field. Please visit her lab website for more information and ways to join her lab.
